+Gonzo-YT Posted February 16, 2005 Share Posted February 16, 2005 As discussed in a previous thread, I have found information on a series of USC&GS benchmarks in Yukon Territory, Canada. I actually located one of them before the snow fell. These marks were placed in 1943 on an expedition led by a Capt. Bowie, and are located along the Alaska highway with a few along the White Pass and Yukon railway. I applied for and recieved a research grant to do two things: 1. Locate and document, through photographs, maps, drawings and descriptions of the area, as many of the marks as I can. Using historical material I want to be able to do some "then and now" type of stuff, if possible. 2. Do archival research to learn more about the expedition, especially the personal stories of those involved, both as members of the expedition and members of the local community. Hopefully, I will be able to structure the project so that specific photos, stories, etc. are tied to a specific benchmark. My main product will be a website, so anyone who is interested will be able to view the project. If anyone has any information that might be helpful, I would love for you to get in touch with me: email@example.com Watch this thread for further updates. Regards, Anthony PS: Yep, I'm getting money to go benchmark hunting! Quote Link to comment
